Until I reached “but 18meg limit. . .”, I felt I must be reading a poem; those words run beautifully! This is a fascinating topic for a piece of art. Your music perfectly suggests a scene of stillness, emptiness, and the poignant reality of the passage of time and what is lost in an industrial context. I find this tone-poem eminently effective; so much so, I’ve downloaded a copy for future enjoyment! David, if you are inclined, I suggest you actually turn your moving description into a finished poem. The subject matter would yield all kinds of possibilities.
a very haunting track i loved the tone of the bass guitar and with the synth works very well with the vocals a statement of urban decay maybe it has that feel about the whole song
Sorry I got here so late David, this is so haunting, but so happy, what lovely sounds, it has "the spirit" love the bass and vocal work, fascinating words!
Just catching up...somehow I nearly missed this-un. Got a wonderful sense of drifting down the Clyde past all those old shipyards...I got a bird that never flew too...dig the hint of bag-pipes at 4.44...it just hit me...eventually. lol. Epic!..keith
Changing times, urban decay, constant challenges that transform the heart of a great city through time. I've walked along the Clyde, very like my home town. Once proud, powerful cities, steeped in heavy industry & shipbuilding, the powerhouses of a once global empire. Still a great city with a fantastic character. Enjoyed - Phil
Another nice one David. Your music and lately, the vox/lyrics, just move me away from the here and the now. Not a bad thing for sure. I sometimes feel I am lost in a combination of an "Outer Limits" episode, "Twilight Zone" episode and a Frank Zappa Dream when listening to it.....
Another great title that drew me to your page. Quite a dark tone to the piece - dramatic and tense. Your artist comments really helped to set the scene. An epic journey of the imagination. Superbly produced and realised. .
You did a fine job in interpreting the long ago decay of things imagined to be prosperous now lay in ruin. I grew up beside the Hudson river, as a kid I would take long walks pondering what ruins I was looking at as they had little resemblance of what they were or ever were. You caught these moments here with your amazing way with music for the mind.
a wonderfully pensive tune...didn't know much about Clyde, so this was an opportunity, not only to soak up the river view, but to learn of the industry, the dredging challenges, the Clydebuilt mark of excellence, empire significance...and the passing of the same...Dylan was right: the times, they are a-changing...the darkened fringes of this composition haunt the spirit in a lament for something that was, but is no longer.
Outstanding!!! Great synth sounds throughout that work this masterpiece and the vocals aw just hit the spot! and keep it all together. Love the slight darkness in it too. Top top production and big vote. Cheers! E.S.
This is next to Craig Armstrong's - Glasgow Track (you probably heard???)
Midi keyboard.Favourite software Sony Acid, Ableton and Nexus 2, Omnisphere and Alchemy.Lean more towards ambient music, way to old to do a jig.
Hope you find something here you like or inspires you...
